Sweater Society Techniques
Sweater Society meets The Joy Of Sox...
Learn all necessary techniques for knitting a raglan jumper top-down, in the round, by knitting a mini version of the garment.
Concentrating on circular knitting, how to set up your raglan sleeves and increases, setting aside, then picking up stitches, managing regular increases, and choosing appropriate ways of casting on and off, your mini sweater may not be finished in class, but you'll have everything you need to finish off at home.
You will need to be able to knit and purl. We'll discuss swatching, tension squares and what you're supposed to do with them, top-down sweater hacks and all sorts of clever ways to make knitting your real size jumper a breeze!
Finish your jumper, bring it in to show off and you'll earn yourself a badge!
Materials, pattern and knitting needles included. Bring your own lunch, or take advantage of one of the many nearby cafes. Hot drinks included. Cake only if you earn it! ;)
